National Research Council (NRC) Associate Programs

December 6, 2011

I’m copying and pasting this from the announcement I received. I should warn you that the information about post-docs doesn’t seem to be up yet (or I can’t find it), and the info for graduate-level fellowships focuses specifically on the NETL Methane Hydrate Program. However, I suspect that if you keep checking back at the website, you might find more information posted later.

“The NRC Associateship Programs are now accepting applications.

The NRC (National Research Council) administers competitive graduate, postdoctoral and senior research awards for 26 U.S. federal research agencies and affiliated institutions at over 100 locations in America and abroad.

Awardees get to conduct independent research in areas compatible with the interests of sponsoring laboratories; devote full-time effort to research and publication; access excellent and often unique facilities at federal research enterprises; and collaborate with leading scientists and engineers.

Awards are available for scientists and engineers at all stages of their careers. Applicants should have, or anticipate receiving, an earned doctorate in science or engineering from a U.S. institution or its equivalent from a foreign institution. Many awards are open to foreign nationals as well as to U.S. citizens.

Stipends run from $42,000 to $75,000 for recent graduates and are proportionally higher for senior associates. Graduate entry level stipends begin at $30,000 and are higher for additional experience. The NRC also provides health insurance, relocation benefits and a travel allowance. Host laboratories provide research facilities, equipment and supply funding.
